We Are Prepared to Deal with the Insurance Company so You Don’t Have To
As soon as we have all the relevant documents together, we will submit your claim to the at-fault party’s insurance company in a push to begin negotiations. We communicate with the insurance company for you so you don’t have to worry about the details.
We are also here to protect you in the event the insurance company tries to trick you into providing a formal statement accepting fault or settling for a lowball offer.
We Will Help You Gather the Evidence You Need to Build a Strong Claim
We can help you obtain all the evidence you need to establish the facts you state in your claim, including police reports, photos and videos of the scene, and eyewitness statements. This evidence helps us prove the other party’s liability, as well as the extent of your damages.
We can also help you gather evidence that may be more difficult to obtain without an attorney’s help, such as medical records, wage and income statements, and police reports. We can also ask experts to testify on your behalf, and, if necessary, we will call in a reconstruction specialist to recreate the crash and help you better prove fault.
We Can Help You File Before the Statute of Limitations Runs Out
South Carolina’s statute of limitations requires you to file legal action in a car wreck case within three years of the date of the incident. However, you may have even less time, depending on the parties involved. To avoid losing your right to compensation, contact a car accident lawyer at George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers as soon as possible to discuss your case.
Can Your Case Settle without Going to Trial?
In most cases, a car accident attorney should be able to settle the matter without the case ever having to reach the inside of a courtroom. However, there are instances when the insurance company simply refuses to offer a fair settlement, and we need to take the fight further. If your case needs to go to trial, we will not shy away from doing what needs to be done to fight for every dollar of the settlement you’re entitled to.
